    MacBook Pro Mid 2012 Retina - 'Whiring' noise
    Evening all,

    My Macbook Pro retina has started making a constant 'whirring' noise whenever it's used, it begins as soon as the lid is opened. I'm assuming it's a fan, I've noted it come on in the past when it's been used for a long time or come out of hibernation, however now it is all the time.

    Given I use the device mostly for work related tasks in a quiet environment its very annoying. I bought a care pack with the device, if I take it to an apple shop will they fix the problem i.e. does an issue of this kind constitute them invoking the carepack?

    Also, ever since I bought the MBP it's always had 2 (for want of a better phrase) blown out pixels, it's not always noticeable, but when it is it's annoying. Is something like that covered by the carepack?


    thanks!

    Specs:
    Imac 27", 3.3GHz, 512 flash storage, 16GB memory, macOS Sierra.
    Assume you mean the optional three year AppleCare?

    If so pop it in to where you purchased or an Apple Reseller/Genius Bar.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    Thanks for the swift reply.

    Yep the optional 3 years one.

    I read somewhere that they can't repair the retina macbooks and have to replace them if there is a hardware fault? Sounds nonsense to me?!?

    If you have the 3 year extended Applecare...then just take it to Apple. Regardless of how they have to repair it...it will be repaired/replaced.
